New Delhi [India], Dec 9 (ANI): Intensifying pressure on the Centre over construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya, senior Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Suresh 'Bhaiyyaji' Joshi on Sunday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of not fulfilling its promise and demanded that a legislation should be enacted if need arises.
"Those in power are aware of people's sentiments, should listen to them and fulfill the demand of Ram temple in Ayodhya. They had promised to construct a Ram temple. We are not begging but expressing our sentiments. The country wants 'Ram rajya'," Joshi said at a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) rally in Delhi's Ramlila Maidan.
The Babri Masjid, built by Mughal emperor Babur in 1528 in Ayodhya was on December 6, 1992, pulled down allegedly by a group of Hindu activists, who claimed that the mosque was constructed after demolishing a Ram temple.
On October 29, the Supreme Court had adjourned the hearing in Ram Janambhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit till January 2019 to fix the next hearing date in the matter, challenging the Allahabad High Court ruling of 2010. Since then, several hearings have been held in the top court to resolve the issue.
The Allahabad High Court in its 2010 verdict had suggested the division of the disputed land in Ayodhya among all the three parties-Nirmohi Akhara, Sunni Waqf Board and Ram Lalla. (ANI)
